Cue Sheet


Four girls promenade go walkin' around
Back home and swing your man
Join hands I sing, circle left round the ring
Do a left allemande and weave the ring
Wind, weave; weave and wind, meet a little girl, pretty little date
Swing and promenade
A thousand miles away from home
Waitin' for a train

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle and get four hands around
Meet the sides, a right & left thru
Swing thru tonight then the boy you run right
Half tag, scoot back there too
Boy fold, girl turn thru back to the man and ...
Swing your man, promenade away
A thousand miles away from home
Waitin' for a train

Waiting For A Train Lyrics ID: 883

All around the water tower
Waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said if you've got money
I'll see that you don't walk
Well I haven't got a nickel
Not a penny can I show
Get off, get off you railroad bum
And he slammed that boxcar door

Well, he put me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me
The moon and stars up above
Nobody seems to want me
Nor to lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco
Going back to Dixieland
My pocketbook is empty
My heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home
Just waiting for a train

Lyrics by Jimmie Rodgers.
Recorded by John Denver.
